wednesday night in the first of three presidential campaigns. drilling obama in the polls of several battleground states, romney sought to rejuvenate his campaign with an attack on what he called president obama's policies of trickle-down government. >> i am concerned the path we're on has been unsuccessful. the president has a view to one similar when he ran four years ago, that a bigger government spending more, taxing more, regulating more -- a trickle- down government -- would work. that is not the right answer for america. >> president obama was more subdued in his comments, failing to make one mention of romney's infamous 47%, and his background of bain capital. addressing romney's tax plan, obama said romney's effort to cut taxes for the wealthy would be to the gutting of essential government programs. box for 18 months he has been running on this tax plan. five weeks before the election, now he is saying his big, bold idea is, "never mind." the fact is, if you are lowering the rates the way you described, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and
the presidential debate new video of president obama back in 2007 back when he was presidential candidate is now start to go make a lot of headlines. look at this. >> people in new orleans they don't care about it as much. >> we will play more of these comments coming right up. >> could gitmo detainees be headed to the midwest? we will tell you about this when we come back. >> good morning. it is 16 minutes after the hour. it is time for a look at who is talking this morning. our next story is a big one. it is becoming an even bigger talker. the daily caller has uncovered video from 2007 of then candidate obama at a campaign event. he's speaking before an audience of african american ministers including his controversial former pastor jeremiah wright. >> the video in its entirety is about 40 minutes long. in the clip we are about to show you the now president obama is speaking about hurricane katrina and claims the victims of that storm were ignored by the government but the circumstance was different for 9-11. >> down in new orleans where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later there is a f
and a lot of people think win or lose for obama, a possible presidential candidate for the democrats in 2016 against kelly ayotte, one of the rising stars in the republican party, the senator from the key swing state of new hampshire, and then we're going to have a debate guru, bret o'donnell, may not have heard of him, but seen his work, one of the campaign debate coaches for 2004 and mccain in 2008. and mitt romney before the florida primary, florida debate, obliterated newt gingrich and we'll get him to give tricks of the trade, what they do right or wrong and what they need to do differently next time. >> very good. tune into fox news sunday, thanks, chris. >> thanks, cries. >> clayton: coming up on the show, speaking of paul ryan, one voter asked him to be more specific with his plans. >> i heard you, was it sunday when you were on fox, and you didn't answer his question about how we're going to-- you know, what are your plans. >> yeah, no, look-- >> she says her words have now been twisted by the obama administration and she's here to set the record state. >> peter: then a scarlet lett

rehearsed candidate ever before a presidential debate. >> what is president obama's biggest strength, congressman? >> he's got that big smile. but other than that, look, he's a very charming person. there's a reason why he became the president of the united states. but it's going to be a good debate. >> what are you worried about, bill, the most as far as president obama is concerned? >> well, as you know, i worked for president obama for a long time. and i love the guy. but he does have this reputation for sometimes speaking in paragraphs and not in sound bites. in this kind of venue, sound bites are the thing that's important. so i think that any obama supporter who really loves the president is a little worried that maybe sometimes he may speak longer than the evening news and the morning news the next day is able to cover in full. >> as someone who's moderated four debates with him can testify to that. congressman, to you, what's the biggest weakness governor romney has. i've moderated four debates with him as well. >> there's so much material to attack the president on -- >> no.

. >> thanks so much in carraacasc venezuela. >>> hoping to build momentum following the presidential debat debates, president obama stumping in california, mitt romney also on the road after what many saw as a lackluster debate last week for the president in particular. he's hoping the new lower unemployment rate will give him a boost. the president is attending a fund-raiser in los angeles, and then he heads on to ohio. mitt romney in the meantime is spending the weekend in florida where yesterday he spent much of the day preparing for the next debate. it's a must-win state if he wants to capture the white house. >>> and, of course, you don't want to forget that the vice presidential debate is this thursday. joe biden and paul ryan squaring off. our cnn coverage begins at 7:00 eastern time. >>> all right. some news for your car out there. honda is recalling 268,000 crvs, its popular suv, model years 2002 to 2006. they say there's a faulty window stwich in the driver's side door, and if it gets wet it can start fire. no crashes or injuries have been reported but honda knows a four-switch f

politics now. first of three presidential debates is tonight where president obama and governor mitt romney will stand on the same stage for the first time in eight years. >> now, in the swing state of colorado, the candidates will focus on the economy. melanie alnwick is live at the white house with a preview. >> reporter: more than 50 million people are expected to tune in tonight to witness the verbal sparring. governor rome necessity's message will be that the country cannot afford four more years of the obama administration and its policies. president obama's message will be that the country is far better off than it would have been without his policies and he needs four more years in order to be able to finish the job. now, in denver, colorado, final preparations are under way for that first presidential election debate in colorado. the showdown in denver between the president and governor mitt romney will take place at the university of denver. now, unlike debates in the past, this one will be a little bit different. it will be a 90-minute debate broken up into six 15-minute discussi
the last presidential -- the first presidential debate. obama now at 45%, romney at 49%. that's a significant shift from before the debate when the president was ahead by eight points, 51% to 43%. but let's dig a little bit deeper right now. this question, all likely voters who were asked answered, obama doesn't know how to turn the economy around, do you agree or disagree? 54% said they agree with that. 44% they say disagree. that sounds like trouble for the president's reelection campaign. >> that does. that number -- first of all, the top-line numbers are surprising because i believe pew has been a pr pre-pro obama poll. pew's been pretty good for obama. the top-line numbers are really surprising. have to see if other polls show the same thing. but as you point out, that's the key number, the economy. how does obama get out of this box of voters being not happy with the economy? but up until now, willing to perhaps give him another chance. i'm surprised. i'm surprised the debate turned things around, if they indeed have, that quickly. obama has two more debates to turn thin
of the first presidential debate between governor romney of massachusetts and president obama. you see both men being greeted by their wives on stage. even this portion of the debate is negotiated ahead of time by the campaigns in terms of which members of their family will be joining them on stage. this is, these these are negotiated down to this level of detail. in terms of how the overall debate unfolded, i personally do not know who won this debate. i do feel that we saw this debate format die a very painful death on camera tonight. the contrast between the candidates was stylistic as much as substantive. president obama i think calm and basically explanatory tonight. governor romney, more hyper, and i don't mean that in a negative way, just sort of more amped, more assertive. and that manifests in a way that the debate format was just dismantled. the format and i think the moderator, with all due respect to mr. lehrer dismantled. this is one of those debates, you could predict the score more by time of possession in terms of who was speaking more. then you could by any other individual pla
of the first presidential debate of the 2012 election. just about half an hour ago, president obama and republican challenger mitt romney wrapped up a 90-minute debate that covered not at all a wide range of topics. limited to domestic politics. we knew tonight but basically these guys talked about sunday morning beltway show favorites like "similarson bowls" and medicare and social security but left out a lot of other big domestic issues that have been major political issues including immigration, women's rights, specifically with issue of abortion rights, union rights and including mr. romney's 47% remarks which are absolutely dominated the campaign for the last week or more. mr. romney's record as has mass governor was also not discussed except on mr. romney's own terms when he brought it up himself. there was honestly, a lot left on the cutting room floor by this format and by the moderator who moderated with more than a light touch. mr. romney by most estimates needed to come out with a strong night tonight giving how he was fairing into the polls heading into the night and he
clearly came in with what i would call a presidential strategy in the debate. and they may, at team obama, look at that tonight and say we've got to change that. and that strategy was the president was not going to step down from the presidential podium into that courtroom and become a prosecutor. mitt romney was happy to take on the role of the smiling prosecutor, which i think we can all agree was exactly what he should have done. tactically what we saw mitt romney do makes sense from where we're sitting certainly, and when you are sitting where we're sitting, watching what the president was doing in the debate, being careful, protecting his lead, you might say, you can look at that and say that's not going to work in the next two debates. and i think team obama is probably looking at that right now and saying okay, we have to step into this debate. we can't stand back and i would differ with you, rachel about the moderator point in this debate. i actually like this kind of debate because the moderator is not a factor. he leaves it up to the debaters to make it a debate. mitt romney's t
. >> president barack obama and governor mitt romney preparing to face off in their first presidential debate. >> and here in denver, the candidates know what happens on this debate stage certainly could help sway the election. >> a president struggling with a slow economy, hoping to boost confidence in his leadership. >> i'm not fighting to create democratic and republican jobs, i'm fighting to create american jobs. >> a challenger fighting in the poll es trying to connect with average americans. after months of attacks on the campaign trial, it's time for these candidates to confront each other face to face. >> we will win this election, we will finish what we started! >> i will do better than this president has done for the american people! >> in colorado tonight, barack obama and mitt romney in their first presidential date. >> these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward. >> what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing. >> two men with different vision on issues voters care about most.
presidential debate, a bombshell is about to be dropped on the white house because tonight you'll hear from barack obama like you've never heard from him before. >> oh, yes, that was the introduction last night before fox aired tape of a 2007 speech by then-candidate obama to a group of black ministers in which he criticized the response to hurricane katrina and provided certain analysts with an excuse for a little racial fear mongering. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. >> do you notice a change in the way he delivers this speech? >> this accent is absurd. this is not the way obama talks. in is not a dog whistle. this is a dog siren. >> it's incendiary -- >> yes, it's just about as incendiary as two white dudes debates how black is too black in a black man's speech. indeed, fox ran with it all the way into the morning on "fox and friends". >> we watched president obama for 3 hchl years. i don't think he's governed in a race this way at all. i think that was going to be an
here from 2007, from the speech by then senator and presidential candidate barack obama. the daily collar dug up a full video of the speech, posting it online, calling it an exclusive, calling it obama's other race speech. joe johns, let me go to you there in washington. joe, to be crystal clear, there is absolutely nothing new about this speech, it is five years old. so my question to you, is -- why is this popping up now? why is this being trumpeted by so many conservative media outlets, of course, the timing on the eve of the first presidential debate? >> well, brooke, they say the entire tape of the entire speech has not been widely circulated. so that's why they put the exclusive label on it. timing is everything. it is a political year. could be a way to fire up conservatives at crunch time, also, as simple as maybe the daily caller somehow discovered this tape, but they had something exclusive, ran with it. either way, it is safe to say it is old news. the reason it gets attention from conservatives is there is a school of thought out there that says the president has deeply
to watch two men argue with each other. barack obama and mitt romney debated health care, the role of government, and governing one month before the presidential election. but they spent most of their time arguing over the economy. the 90 minute debate in denver, colorado, one of the few battleground states that could decide the election. candidates concentrated on how to revive the economy. >> the only way to meet governor romney's pledge of not reducing the deficit, or not adding to the deficit, is by burdening middle-class families, now that's -- not my analysis. >> the president has a view very similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago, a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. >> romney kept attacking o mode instructions. obama some times had trouble getting a word in. many u.s. media analysts say romney had a belttter performan. the candidates have two more debates they have five weeks to win over undecided voters. turkish forces have fired artillery s
the race but didn't up end it still a slight edge for president obama. >> we know the vice presidential debate this week. there have been memorable moments before. we remember this from four years ago. >> nice to meet you. hey, can i call you joe. >> you can call me joe. >> can i call you joe. that was sarah palin holding her own against joe biden and this memorable moment from the 19 8 debate. vice presidential candidate lloyd bentsen saying this to dan quayle as he said he had as much experience as jfk. >> jack kennedy was a friend of mine, senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> so powerful moments, rick, but did they make a difference? >> two of the most vice presidential debate lines of all time but both were uttered by losing candidates. they know the stakes are huge for the debate. this is brand-new terrain for paul ryan. biden has more pressure on him now than ever because of the man at the top of the ticket's poor performance last week. >> we'll all be watching. rick klein with the bigger picture, thank you. this right here one on one, george and diane at the dafk and jake tapper a
obama and mitt romney are about to take the national stage for the first presidential debate and with only two days left to prepare both candidates are hunkering down right now while the political expectations game goes into overdrive. mitt romney is heading to colorado today. our national political correspondent jim acosta is traveling with him. jim? >> reporter: wolf, it is a pre-debate tradition. managing expectation just in case their candidate has an off night wednesday and both sides have another thing in common. they think media might be pulling for the other guy. >> governor, are you ready? >> ready for the debate? >> yes. i'm there. >> reporter: after a weekend of debate preparations, mitt romney was careful to avoid questions about his first matchup with president obama. but on a conference call with reporters, a top adviser revealed there's one subject romney is ready for. >> not to worry -- >> reporter: the comments that were caught on tape on the 47% of voters he said were dependent on government. >> we wouldn't be surprised, obviously, if that came up at the deb
tonight in the first presidential debate. >> president obama and governor mitt romney will take the stage together for the first time since 2008. tonight's debate's topic will focus on domestic issues, specifically the economy. mitt romney has given a debate preview by saying he might be willing to reduce income taxes for home mortgages. experts say this first debate is very important to both candidates in getting voters. >> the public wants to see if mitt romney is an acceptable alternative. they sort of know the president. he's the devil they know. romney is the devil they don't. they haven't made up their mind about him one way or the other right now. >> colorado has nine electoral votes up for grabs, making it a crucial state for both candidates. there will be two more debates this month of the the second one takes place on october 16th. >>> tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> conservatives are using this 2007 video of then presidential candidate barack obama against him before tonight's debate. they say the video shows a racially ch
. >> the first u.s. presidential debate between president obama and mitt romney is tonight in denver. the focus is on domestic issues and expectations are set high. new jersey's republican governor chris christie told "face the nation" this whole race is going to turn upside down come thursday morning. this as the latest nbc "wall street journal" poll shows president obama holds a narrow 49-46% lead over romney. some 40% of voters say the country is moving in the right direction versus 53% who say it's on the wrong track. nearly 60% believe the u.s. economy is recovering, though. joining us now is steve murphy, a democratic strategist and managing partner at mvar, and gretchen hamill is a republican strategist and executive director at public notice. nice to have you both with us. steve, perhaps you can kick it off for us. what do you think tonight holds? >> you know, here's what barack obama has to do. the debate right now in the campaign is very heavily over economic policy going forward. that's where barack obama wants to focus. he will accuse mitt romney of seeking $4 trillion, $5 trillion
by being truthful, doing a good job as a presidential candidate, these guys and the obama camp are not going go down without something. they're going pull something, sean and american public is kind of going along with what they want to do. the american public just needs to be aware that they have got to do their own home work. don't relie on the shelter of the media. be aware something could be pulled here to turn things around. >> there is 34 days out of an election this, president never asked about the promise he'd cut the deficit in half in the first term and gave us $6 trillion in debt and fewer americans working and there is media basically sold out the american people and not have done their job. governor, great to see you, thank you for being with us. still ahead on this post debate spin room edition more with frank luntz and his focus group z we'll be joined by rudy giuliani, juan williams and kirsten powers and the man who helped prep governor romney for tonight's debate, senator rob portman. >> second topic getting a deduction to take a plant overseas? i've been in b
for this debate tonight; jobs, the economy, health care. but first, a new distraction for the obama campaign during a critical week. it comes in the form of a video released by "the daily caller" of then-presidential candidate barack obama back in 2007. in it he speaks to a group mostly made up of black pastors. his speech got some coverage at the time he delivered it, but his prepared remarks did not include some of the off-the-cuff, off-prompter moments, if you will, alluding to alleged racism to hurricane katrina and spending decisions made by our elected leaders. our chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live in washington with more. mike? >> reporter: hi, megyn. the tone has attracted some attention with then-candidate obama sounding different as he spoke to a large group of african-american religious leaders in virginia. one major topic was mr. obama trying to contrast the response to hurricane katrina and other high-profile disasters. >> when 9/11 happened in new york city, they said this is too serious a problem, we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget
if it is not a good report. this will further the obama slipping story line. if it was a surprisingly or better than expected report, maybe the debate last night is a thing of the past for president obama. remember, there is a vice presidential debate in a week from today, but it's a little while until the next presidential debate. if the story line is if mitt romney won clearly, bad jobs report, we could go from now until the next presidential debate with with that narrative, which is good for mitt romney and bad for barack obama. >> the last jobs report was in the mix, so this one is more important. thank you so much, chris. that does it for us for this edition of "andrea mitchell reports." tamron has a look at what's next on "news nation." hi, tamron. >> a victory for mitt romney, but did he win because he's so vague last night. ezra kline joins us. what might be the million dollar question. why didn't president obama bring up romney's 47% remarks? bain capital or even more details on romney's taxes. well, patrick gaspar from the dnc will join me live. we'll find out what he knows. our "news nati

political news this hour. as previously uncirculated or not widely circulated tape of president obama on the one side and vice presidential nominee paul ryan on the other side have both been posted online tonight in typical, late in the campaign, october surprise, boy do we have a bomb shell fashion. first on the right at the tucker carlson website, the right wing sirens blaring excitement tonight is for the same kind of tape they have tried to make bomb shells out of the last three times we have gone through this in the election cycle. over and over and over again, the right has tried to make huge news not out of something president obama has done as president but out after a big unveiling, a big, giant, coordinated round of attention for something from president obama's supposedly secret past. this spring it was the glen beck website dousing themselves in gasoline and pulling the fire alarm over video of president obama speaking as a law student at harvard. video at a press conference where obama says nothing news worthy. that was explosive tape, not at all. last month it was the dr
didn't care for mitt romney, and last night president obama gave him, you know, some much needed life support. >> so -- >> you know what, it's not over. >> of course. no, no, it's not over at all. we have two more debates, and obviously a vice presidential debate as well. anna, romney actually talked a lot about jobs. he kept going back to had it. he was very, very focused here, and he accused the president of killing jobs. it didn't even matter what the subject was. he kept bringing it back to jobs. was there anything that you felt that the president needed to focus on, that he could have made more inroads? >> he needed to focus, period, suzanne. he just was unfocused. he wasn't quite there. you know, he -- why didn't he bring up all the -- why didn't he correct the things he felt he needed correcting? because he was slow-footed. why didn't he focus on one or two or three of his big achievements? because he was slow-footed. he just wasn't at the top of his game. i think mitt romney took advantage of that and, you know, we saw him even dominate the debate format and really just be hea
. the problem for mr. obama is that's debatable. it's not a fact unless you are spike lee. the presidential debate this evening should be a passionate display. he has to call out barack obama on the muddled economy. the governor has to do that in. when that happens, the president will lash back pinning romney as ruthless rich guy who wants to exploit working americans. i can't imagine romney is going to take that without a stinging come back. the debate has a potential of being rowdy. i want to see these guys go after each other. they are so dramatically apart in belief systems. every american should understand the huge gap. the pressure is on mitt romney tonight but he has plenty of verbal ammunition. in less than an hour, we will see if he uses it and that's the memo. in a moment, carl rove, dick morris, kirsten powers, leslie marshall and dennis miller will all weigh in on the debate this evening. the factor will be back after these messages.
